test wheel

Easy setup.

Our test wheel is compatible with all common hubs. When you use the test wheel, the vehicle stands on the powertrain test bed (R2R) under real contact conditions and without any external factors affecting it.

In order to be able to examine large brake systems in powerful vehicles and small wheel arches in compact cars with a test wheel, a low profile tyre is used which gives a large rim inside diameter and a compact wheel outside diameter. The wheel hub can be centred with an adjustable clamping nut that can compensate for any tolerances in the hub.

There is the option of having the test wheel fitted with additional connections for supplying cooling air to the brake disc and a contactless measuring system to display the current brake disc temperature during the test run.

To fix the vehicle in place on the test bed, it is connected to the base with a fork and damper system on the front or rear axle wheels. Different vehicle lengths can be catered for with the telescopic connection.

Wheel contact plates

In connection with the test wheel, the KS wheel contact plates on powertrain test beds provide an additional option for moving the vehicle in a transverse direction. They absorb the vehicle’s suspension settling movements that may occur during the test run. A separate shock absorption/damper plate system for all four wheels ensures that the vehicle is positioned without any adverse factors acting on it.
